A 4-Year Construction Timelapse of the World’s 2nd Tallest Building
The Shanghai Tower is the tallest building in China and 2nd tallest in the world. Its 128 stories are divided into 9 vertical zones, including retail at the base, offices in the middle, hotels and observation decks at the top. The super-tall skyscraper features a double-decker elevator that offers the longest single elevator journey in the world at 580m (1,900 feet) in under a minute.
Filmed over the course of 4 years, this awesome timelapse by Joe Nafis shows the Shanghai Tower being constructed.
